KFC has suspended a member of staff who claimed an order was laced with pubic hair. The worker at the restaurant in Gabalfa, Cardiff, said the alleged move was an act of revenge after customers told her friend to ‘smile more’.
However, bosses claim it could not have happened because there were four other people in the kitchen – ‘which is pretty cosy’.
Details of the alleged incident were published in an anonymous post on the ‘Spotted Cardiff’ Facebook page, designed as an outlet for ‘rants’ about the Welsh capital. The staff member wrote that the victims of the prank, a group of girls, drove through KFC between 1pm and 1.30pm yesterday.
The post said: ‘Karma’s a **** girls, hope you enjoyed your food I made for you after overhearing the way you spoke to my girl on the head set be picking pubes out your teeth for a week’
However, a spokesman for KFC said the worker – who is suspended indefinitely – has now admitted it didn’t happen after being interviewed by the ‘area coach’.
The spokesman conceded that there was an ‘altercation’ at the drive-thru but maintained that no food was contaminated – adding that two other workers have since been interviewed and insist it could not be true.
